In many cases, the state owns the roads. Are there little black tabs on the poles with the street names with SR and a 4-digit number? If so, then the road is under the jurisdiction of NC DOT.

In my experience with HOA Boards we were never able to enforce our rules on public roads. Now we had alleyways behind homes that were not city owned and we could tow and enforce parking restrictions. We did have those large, bright red stickers which were very effective.

Because sometimes, HOA boards implement new rules using "Cranial Rectal Immersion" as their thought process and the homeowners don't necessarily agree with those new rules.

"Cranial Rectal Immersion"... That is absolutely the best analysis I've heard yet

I know of one instance where the HOA wasn't doing anything about on-street parking and the school busses weren't able to make it down the street. If the school bus can't make it, then a fire truck or ambulance can't either.

In this type of instance, I understand having restricted parking rules for safety reasons. This type of issue does not apply to the situation I am dealing with at this time.

HOAs don't just "implement" new rules without following the procedure outlined in their covenants. That typically requires the participation and approval by a majority percentage of homeowners.

Since that rarely happens after covenants have been adopted, I again push back tothe resident. One knows one is moving to a HOA neighborhood, then one complains about following the rules.

Maybe the majority of homeowners don't want to see a bunch of cars parked on the street. Maybe they like the look of clear streets and think you should park in your driveway or garage. Most people like the rules until they realize the rules apply to them as well.

Pshhh. The "rules" in my neighborhood would "change" when the HOA manager would change. They've gotten better though and even sent out a "my bad" letter for how they were (illegally) enforcing trash can placements.

Of coarse they can...anybody that pays an HOA due has agreed to follow a set of rules...a civil contract. If an agreement has been reached between an individual and anHOA then it is perfectly legal. The car isn't recieving the violation...the house/homeowner is.
